Even with Friday's agreement to reopen affected agencies until February 15, Congress and the White House will spend the next three weeks continuing to tussle over Trump's demand for $5.7 billion to build a border wall.

Trump had insisted for more than a month that he would not let the government shutdown end without securing money for his promised wall at the U.S. -Mexico border, reports The Washington Post.

"Earlier, in a Rose Garden speech when he announced the short-term agreement, Trump raised the prospect of using "the powers afforded to me under the laws and Constitution of the United States" to get what he wants".

"If we don't have that wall and we don't have a very powerful barrier, it's all just a waste of time", he wrote. "The government will shut down again, but the president-ignore what Nancy said today because that's just garbage, the president gets his State of the Union address", Gorka responded to Dobbs. Democrats indicated to Trump that they would agree to money for border security in the next round of budget talks now under way, Mulvaney said. A bipartisan committee of lawmakers will be formed to review recommendations from Homeland Security experts and law enforcement concerning what actions should be taken on the southern border.

"You are talking about the woman that's the Queen of the Hill, partner", Dobbs said to Gorka, and added "On this broadcast, she's the victor".

Many were quick to remember that one of Trump's closest allies, Sen.

The 35-day government shutdown began after Trump demanded over $US5 billion for a border wall between the United States and Mexico, INSIDER previously reported.

"I don't know how any member of the administration or of Congress could think that a shutdown was a worthy pursuit", Collins said on CBS.

Mulvaney says Trump doesn't want to see federal agencies closed again and doesn't want to declare a national emergency either.

The White House held a conference call with Cabinet department financial officers late Friday to discuss the resumption of government operations.

Mulvaney added that the White House is still in negotiations with Congress and Trump "doesn't want to shut the government down" and would prefer to secure the funding "the way that things are supposed to get fixed with our government, which is through legislation".

While the accord ended the longest partial government shutdown in U.S. history, it did not provide the $5.7 billion Trump wanted.

"Ultimately he'll be judged by what happens at the end of this process, not by what happened this week", Mulvaney said on Fox. Why he did what he did was because many Democrats have come to us, some of them privately. "Regardless of what they try and say and the tears that stream down their cheeks, they did nothing to protect the American people".

"I don't support any wall funding, but I do support border security", Democrat representative Adam Schiff said on ABC's This Week.

On Friday she said the schedule remained undecided.

"They understand we need border security, they understand we need to resolve these problems and going to shutdowns isn't the way to resolve it", he said. "No more holding federal workers hostage".

The economic fallout from the 35-day shutdown - the longest in the nation's history - has now been calculated as overshadowing Trump's earlier border wall cash demand, after S&P Global Ratings ran the numbers at some $6 billion lost by the USA economy during the closure.
